    Why did you buy a flash cart? Was it to play homebrew? Download NDS games? Multimedia purposes? Why?

    I bought a flash cart because I'm bored on the go and sometimes I can't watch TV or anything. So I use it to play Multimedia and sometimes download NDS games.

    This is one of the stupider questions I've heard on this board.

    Because in Israel, every game costs something like 90$ o_x
    And I don't want to spend so much on every game, so I just bought a flash cart so I could download any game I want right when they're released, and I don't have to wait a long time for them to come here
    That's also the reason I bought a Mod Chip for my Wii, and Wii games cost more than DS games

    why?

    some people use their flashcarts exclusively for homebrew

    some were only interested in adding media ability (books, mp3, video)

    I'm getting one for homebrew and media--but I'm also going to be on summer break and want to try my hand at writing a couple of DS Apps and maybe a game [​IMG]

    Because I can't spend any more money on some overrated games that I'll probably will get bored of it and throw it away. Unless it's a Nintendo game (Mario, DK, Link, Samus, etc..) then of course I'll buy it [​IMG].

    I'll second that.

    Dumb question. I didn't buy it for largely lame largely sucktastic homebrew. Hats off to the DS Organize and Colors homebrew, but I have yet to find anything games wise that wouldn't immediately get labeled crap if it was on sale.

    I didn't get it so I could watch a video on a really too damn small screen. I'd rather use a proper portable dvd player.
    I didn't get it so I could listen to a song on totally inadequate player source. I'd rather an actual mp3 player.

    I bought it because 9 out of 10 Nintendo DS games are not worth stealing, and I'd like to know in advance of buying one if the money will be well spent.

    The R4DS Revolution is so I can demo games. Simple as that. And fuck Nintendo if they don't like that plan.

    k i'll give u the small screen thing, but how is it an "inadequate" player source? :S it plays all my songs, has a decent capacity (depending on ur sd of course), quality is comparable to most mp3s (just rly depends on ur headphones), decent controls, doesn't lag/skip. hell the only problem with it, its a brick. but if ur gonna be dsing and listening to music anyways, mite as well have 2 in 1 rite?

    EDIT: i got it for pirating! rofl. cuz i have no budget for this. >.<

    homebrew, music, and movies r an added bonus. [​IMG]

    I actually like lying in my bed and watching some movie on it before going to sleep, I do that very often..Don't mind the small screens, actually, like it that way it's very compact..
    I homebrew very little, there are few applications I really like, but so far, didn't find any game that would hold me..
    I don't listen any music on it, but have read several books..

    And naturally playing ROMS..

    Multimedia, games, and homebrew.

    But I'm gonna get a mp3 separately. Now that I using the Koss porta pro, the sound on the DS really blows...
